LEVERAGING BUSINESS & THE LAW

My passion is two-prong: business and the law.  In solving clients' legal issues, I strive to approach these issues with a pragmatic business mind. My 20+ years of international business experience help me to understand my clients' issues from a unique perspective.  As a French native speaker, I can also assist clients in contract negotiations and dispute resolution in French when translation is necessary.

 

HEALTHCARE LAW

My practice focuses on assisting health care providers to navigate the complexities of health care regulations, including the Affordable Care Act (“ObamaCare”).  Our clients include individual providers, physician groups, hospitals, neurology centers, orthopaedic centers, eye centers, dialysis centers, behavioral health facilities, ICF/IIDs, etc.

Imbedded in the Health Care Practice at Brouse McDowell, I analyze physician/hospital integration models for compliance with Stark Law and the Anti-Kickback Statute, HIPAA issues, Medicare/Medicaid compliance issues, medical staff issues, telemedicine, etc.  I draft, review and negotiate a variety of legal documents including hospital medical bylaws, employment agreements, personal services agreements, medical director agreements, lease agreements, operating agreements, code of regulations, policies, etc. 

 

IMMIGRATION

My immigration practice primarily focuses on employment-based immigration for medical professionals, scientists, engineers, business executives and researchers in the areas of health care, biotech, education, retail and manufacturing. I represent petitioners such as hospitals, universities, small and large manufacturers, large retailers, and individuals.

 

PRO-BONO ACTIVITIES

My pro-bono work involves helping ex-offenders with sealing criminal records (expungements) and/or obtaining a Certificate of Qualification of Employment (CQE).

US Immigration Documentation
Isabelle was most helpful during the docuementatiin process of my immigration documents and further settlement documents in US . I see her strength in detailing and every aspect of making documentation to make sure everything is correctly mentioned as needed by the system . In addition to her excellent professional skills Isabelle also comes out as a great human being .

the best attorney I've ever met
Isabelle has been handling my L1 petition process. In my experience, I have found her to be a thorough professional who is very competent in her subject and pays attention to every little detail. She has been extremely prompt, flexible and very proactive. She patiently guided me through the process and always supported me with sound advice. As an Indian, applying from Belgium for a US visa I was initially anxious if we'd find an attorney with the ability to bridge the cultural gap. In isabelle I found a very capable attorney who could do this seamlessly. She has a strong international exposure and perspective and is also multilingual. This made a big difference while communicating with people in France and Belgium for my case. I am more than delighted to have her handle my petition, and feel compelled to share this positive experience. Undoubtedly the best attorney I've ever met!
